FM 2016 Data Updates - FM16 Spring 2017 Update
Hello my fellow Football Manager 2016 users. If you are still playing FM16 but you got mad and sad because game wasn't updated in a long time this thread is created for you. And oh well I will totally forgot - did you ever hear word "gamechanger"? If not this is something which you will know very good after experiencing gameplay on AC Milan Star Bucuresti Spring 2017 Update.

First of all I've created once an update for FM15 - I named it Pogback because of this big transfer (it's of course available here on site to download). Now I didn't have big winter transfers to "gave a name" for a file. Because what? You will play Oscar-Draxler-Payet update? I don't think so ;)

Changes included

Ok after short opening let's get to the right intel about this update:

+ TOP 100 transfers of winter transfer window: Oscar, Julian Draxler, Gabriel Jesus, Gonzalo Guedes, Dimitri Payer, Memphis Depay and others
+ Other transfers
+ CA/PA changes

+ AC Milan with new owner Li Yonghong, chairman seat stays free
+ Both AC Milan and Inter Milan are now rich clubs without debts
+ Club known as Steaua Bucharest is now renamed like in real life - Star Bucuresti

+ Big wonderkids update - I've added lots of talents that were not available in basic database, just to mention names like Alexander Isak, Karamoko Dembele, Lazaros Lamprou and many others. I've also changed abilities and potential for talents that were already in game but with weak stats: Andreas Lykke Strand, Axel Kryger, Patryk Klimala, Marek Mróz and many others. To create this part of update I've made big research, I've read a lot from France Football, La Gazetta Dello Sport, some Guardian, UEFA site news and I even check FourFourTwo and OutsideOfTheBoot.

+ Strikers update - I've adjusted stats of strikers who are "on fire" in this season: Anthony Modeste, Franko Andrijasevic, Tom Boere and many others
+ New players listed as free agents: Kevin Grosskreutz, Bilal-Ouid Chikh and many others

+ Big improvement in youth players development, scouting, and training facilities for more than 50 clubs in countries like: Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, Belarus, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Russia, Czech Republic, Albania, Croatia, Serbia, Greece, Wales and many, many others. To create this part of update I've read ECA Report about youth academies, I've check historic record about how many players are developed into first squad. I've also check articles about 50 best clubs in central-eastern Europe football history, Also I've studied few online site, journals and blogs from Scandinavia.

How to install my update

    Hello dear BartySo Is there any way that you could make the game start from 2017 Database? because some player's history seasons doesn't even get placed.
